Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Garsten is knowledgeable, takes his time explaining all procedures before and explains the results very clearly making sure you are comfortable on what was done. He made sure to read all the particulars/paperwork prior to even entering the exam room to discuss my condition. I'm very impressed...more

Dr Garsten has been treating me for ulcerative colitis for over 3 years. He is an amazing, very knowledgeable physician as well as a very caring doctor. I could not imagine dealing with this horrible disease without his treatment and support. I trust him implicitly.
